Joe Paterno Statue
A prominent sculptor would like to see the statue of Joe Paterno that was removed from Beaver Stadium recycled into a healing memorial.
Monday morning the NCAA is expected to announce what they are calling unprecedented sanctions and penalties against the Penn State Football Program for its Guardian’s role in the cover up of the Jerry Sandusky child abuse scandal.
It’s one of the most recognizable and symbolic statues at Penn State. On Sunday, as Joe Paterno’s statue was removed, people in Philadelphia were reacting.
The famed statue of Joe Paterno was taken down from outside the Penn State football stadium Sunday as the NCAA announced it would be issuing sanctions against the university.
Sentiments are deeply divided among Penn State students, alumni and fans, over the removal of the Paterno statue. But one former football player says it’s important to remember, it’s just a statue.
